Hey guys! Welcome back. I started blogging over two years ago and since then have gained over 1,000 followers. That’s not a lot compared to some people, but for me it’s a pretty big deal. I never thought my audience would be this large and that people would keep coming back as much as they have, but I am so thankful. So today I wanted to share with you how I grew my following.
I started out posting everyday, and then for a while I was only posting three days a week. However, no matter what my posting schedule has been I have always communicated that to my audience and made sure they knew when I would be posting. And I stuck to that. For the most part I do post everyday and I make sure I am consistent. This builds trust between you and your followers.
Sharing on social media.
I didn’t start doing this as soon as I should have. It took me about six to seven months to get on social media and start promoting my content. But once I did I started to realize the impact social media can have on my blog. So many people have found my blog via social media and it has helped me grow a ton. So I really recommend promoting your blog on social media if you really want to boost your following.
Knowing what works and what doesn’t.
Throughout the past two years I have learned to get to know my audience. Through knowing my audience I am able to see what works and what doesn’t. I am able to understand what my audience likes and what they don’t like as much. It helps me continue to produce the content that they do want to see and not do the things they don’t want to see.
Blogging and writing in general has always been a huge passion of mine. And when I started my blog I really did everything I could to put my heart and soul into it. And things change as I change, but I continue to have the same passion and drive to keep going with it. And I think my audience really responds to that. They like reading my content because they can see the passion and it’s enjoyable content to read.
Connecting with followers.
I have touched on this already, but it is so important to connect with your audience. Get to know them and let them get to know you. It will have such a profound impact on whether they decide to come back or not. Connect with your readers and let them know that you appreciate them and care about their thoughts. Take them into consideration when you are creating your content.
